Remove Flashback Trojan - Enjoy Safe Surfing

Since the discovery last month of the Flashback Trojan having infected more than 600,000 Mac OS X, Apple and several security firms have released tools to help detect and clean up Flashback infections.
Dr.Web, the Russian antivirus vendor that first sounded the alarm about the outbreak, has published a free online service that lets users tell whether their systems have been seen phoning home to Flashback's control servers (those servers have since been hijacked by researchers). The service requires users to enter their Mac's hardware unique user ID (HW-UUID), because this is how the miscreants who were running the botnet kept track of their infections.
F-Secure, the Finnish security firm that worked with Dr.Web to more accurately gauge the true number of Flashback-infected Macs, has a Flashback Removal Tool available for download from its website.
Apple released its own Flashback Trojan removal tool on Friday, after advising it was working on it.
